Fantasy Board – Wicketkeepers
Part of Saurashtra’s First Class and List A teams, Snell Patel started the tournament with a match-winning 81-run knock but failed to make any impact after that, managing only 13 runs in three innings. Considering it’s a match involving many high-credit players, leaving the 28-year-old out for a cheaper alternative can do wonders.
Performances in this tournament: 81(50), 1(3), 11(13), 1(3)
Snell Patel’s opening partner at Halar Heroes, Sisodiya hasn’t gone past the 10-run mark after scoring 71 runs in the first game. But he costs you lesser than Patel and can help pick better players in other sections.
Performances in this tournament: 71(49), 3(7), 7(9), 0(2)
Fantasy Board – Batters:
Vishvaraj Jadeja has a couple of ducks and a single-digit score in four games in SPL 2022. However, despite his poor form, we can’t leave him out as there are no alternatives for him in the batting section. The 23-year-old represents Saurashtra in all three formats of the game, so don’t be surprised if he comes good today.
Performances in this tournament: 4(9), 0(2), 32(25), 0(2)
Like other batters in this game, Chhaya is also struggling for runs, but the advantage, in this case, is that he can also bowl.
Performances in this tournament: 19(23), 36(23) & 1/8 (1), 5(8), 3(5)
Fantasy Board – Allrounders:
Prerak Mankad is one of Saurashtra’s best players in all three formats of the game, with an unmatched fantasy potential in this league as he bats at one down and bowls a couple of overs against players not up to his level. C/VC Alert!
Performances in this tournament: 82(54) & 1/34 (4) and 1(4) & 0/15 (2), 40(29) & 1/13 (3) 9(7) & 0/10 (1)
In addition to being one of the best bowlers in the tournament, Unadkat also bats at No.5 in this league, making him one of the best C/VC options in this match.
He only played a match-winning knock of 38(27) two games ago.
Performances in this tournament: 12(11) & 2/22 (4), 17(17) & 0/17 (4), 37(27) & 2/17 (4), 7(4) & 3/20 (4)
The former Saurashtra captain only has 15 runs to his name in 4 games but has delivered with the ball, picking up 4 wickets. A player of his calibre could rise to the occasion, however, with this being the tournament’s final game. So expect the Halar Heroes captain to deliver with the bat today. Differential Alert!
Performances in this tournament: 2(6) & 1/24 (3), 0(2) & DNB, 1(3) & 2/18 (3), 12(16) & 1/19 (2)
Saurashtra’s spin bowling star in all three formats of the game, Dharmendrasinh Jadeja has 6 wickets at an economy rate of just 5.25 in the tournament. Jadeja is also handy with the bat, scoring 59 runs in 3 innings. C/VC Alert!
Performances in this tournament: DNB & 3/18 (4), 21(16) & 0/14 (4), 13(10) & 2/36 (4), 25(18) & 1/16 (4)
Fantasy Board – Bowlers:
As we had predicted, Shaurya Sanandia picked up a couple of wickets in the last game. The right-arm pacer is the tournament’s highest wicket-taker, picking up three three-fors in four innings. A reliable C/VC choice if Gohilwad Gladiators bowl first.
Performances in this tournament: 0/16 (3), 3/19 (3), 3/19 (4), 3/14 (4)
The leg spinner has seven wickets in four games. Yadav also managed a 30+ score in the second match, showing his ability with the bat. If he’s defending a target, the 30-year-old becomes an excellent C/VC option in mega leagues, given his consistent wicket-taking ability.
Performances in this tournament: DNB & 2/35 (4), 31(27) & 1/27 (4), DNB & 2/24 (4), 2(3) & 2/22 (4)
